Core Services

Our provision of services is based on the fundamentals of accurate and timely client communication, careful stewardship of our client’s resources and reputation, and the achievement of results within agreed upon timeframes and budgets.

The fusion of our extensive public and private sector experience, having “worked both sides of the counter”, enables us to approach issues and requirements in a holistic manner, thereby avoiding or resolving hurdles and disputes before they can become impediments to achieving success. Our diverse experience also facilitates the building of trusting and rewarding relationships during public engagement and planning processes, and the achievement of successful team environments for the projects under our management.


The majority of our services are provided by Rob Thompson. This allows us to respond in a focused and timely manner to all of our client’s needs. Where necessary, we bring in specialized consultants for project services such as financial structuring, civil and geotechnical engineering, architects, cost consultants and property assessors, heritage reviews, marketing, environmental and tree analyses, and urban design.


We can provide specific issue or problem resolution services, strengthen the services of your existing team, serve as the owner’s representative through the course of a project or provide the full team services required by your project or municipality.
